Scam: prosperitycubed.com - Roger MacRae - Email Processing - Do you like to pay for going to jail?

by Rudolf Faix 5. July 2015 07:51

Email samüleThe scam starts already with a false promotion: "Make $25.00 For Every Email You Process And Get Paid INSTANTLY!"

The second lie on the website is found in the words "Proven System Since 2010". prosperitycubed.com is a copy of epsprosperityhotline.com. The domain epsprosperityhotline.com got created January 28, 2013. If the system is proven since 2010 then they have already lost their reputation more than once with their "Proven System". There is no other reason to change the domain name of a "proven system".

You have to advertise the system and you have to sell the system to the prospects from the advertising. You get the sign-up fee directly if you are able to convince a prospect.

As not every prospect can get convinced to the system the promotion "Make $25.00 For Every Email You Process And Get Paid INSTANTLY!" is already wrong. With other words you are doing the hard selling work without a calculable result.

As the promotion is already a lie the income promotion will be a lie too. So don't dream from big money try to think about the system without getting influenced from dreams.

If you sign-up to this system then you get nothing else than:

  1. Pre-Written Ads
  2. Step-by-Step instructions how you can promote the system
  3. Access to the EPS Support Team if you ever need help
  4. The option to purchase a website :)

With other words nothing which has a real value. For this is the complete system an illegal pyramid system. You are promoting an illegal system under your name, you are sending out emails under your name and you are getting the money. That makes you to the responsible person in front of the law court and this law court can bring you into jail. The real owner of the system keeps himself out of focus from the justice and makes his money with upselling!!!

Don't be stupid, you even can get fined for participating at an illegal system even you earned nothing from it.

Start thinking by using your own brain. Why shall you pay? You get nothing for your payment. The advertising from the system can get copied without any problem - you can find it on Facebook - and you can start your own system too if you like to take such a risk. In this case you would be really your own boss with all the risks.

prosperitycubed.com is a copy from epsprosperityhotline.com. It seems that they have made a new domain because the old one has got already a bad reputation and get blocked by some browser plugins.

Fraud & Scam

risingtraffic.com - a waste of time and/or money

by Rudolf Faix 4. July 2015 10:50

Rising TrafficIf you are thinking logical then you'll get it that risingtraffic.com is the same time-wasting and/or money-wasting system like trafficmonsoon.com.

Each advertiser or advertising agency likes to get clicks because the user is interested into the product. Such user will get easier to be a customer then someone, which clicks only for the reason for getting paid or to get some clicks on his own advertisement. Such one will even not read the content of the site. He will automatize the clicks or wait until he will be able to take the next opportunity for getting more. For this is the scam already included into the system from RisingTraffic and TrafficMonsoon

The scam gets very good explained in the FAQ from RisingTraffic:

You do not need to pay for anything before using our traffic exchange services however as a free member you will only receive 1 visitor credit for 2 sites visited. After purchasing our services you will receive credit at every visit.

You have to buy AdPacks which will give you a revenue sharing position up to $39.2. You must click at least 10 ads in 24 hours to be liable for the revenue sharing position. The more the referrals the more you will earn.

There are really 4 ways to earn with RisingTraffic

  1. paid to click
  2. using ad services to generate leads to make money in your primary business
  3. revenue sharing
  4. direct sales commissions

(10 % commision is only for referral purchases.)

As each one which has something to hide hides RisingTraffic the ownership of their domain. If we take a look at Alexa then we can see where their traffic is coming from:

RisingTraffic.com Countries

If you take a look at the above table then you'll see in which countries your advertising will get seen if you make advertising with RisingTraffic. There are not really the rich countries in the list, which can bring you an income from your advertising. The only income you get is if you buy AdPacks and click on the advertising of others. For this reason is the system nothing else than a pyramid system, where you can even earn 10% from your referrals. The open question is: How long it will take until the system will break down? As the owners of the site are expecting the break down they have hidden their identity.

Fraud & Scam

Only Affiliate Marketing SCAM offers getting found at the social networks

by Rudolf Faix 4. July 2015 06:24

Pyramid systemAffiliate marketers are you really so stupid and think that you can sell money?

Do you not know that everybody knows that you cannot take out more from a pot than it is inside?

As long as you are not offering a product, which should get sold from the affiliates and the affiliates are getting their commission, is your system only an illegal pyramid system or Ponzi scheme!!! Participating and promoting in such a system can bring you only into jail.

A pyramid system is an unsustainable business model that involves promising participants payment or services, primarily for enrolling other people into the scheme, rather than supplying any real investment or sale of products or services to the public.

Various forms of pyramid systems are illegal in many countries including the United States and numerous European countries.

As Europe enforced the law that promises in the promotion are enforceable in front of law court, the illegal sales systems disappeared very fast. Only some legal systems like Tupperware, Jeunesse, Amway and a few others are remaining. Some of this companies even needed to change their sales and promotion structure to be conform with the local law. The story about Amway at WikiPedia shows how the law has changed the world of affiliate marketing. You should think about it before you promote such a system - especially if you are not able to pay fines of a few million dollars!

Why you are trying to sell money? Do you really hope that you can find some people, which are more stupid then you are by yourself?

In such pyramid or Ponzi schemes only the people on top are earning. The people at the bottom of the pyramid are only losing their money. It does not matter if you need "only" to pay a small sign-up and/or membership fee. In any case you can use this money in a better way or are you already so poor that you like to get a place to sleep and food for free of charge by going to jail?

Fraud & Scam

vivatic.com - Titus Sharpe - outside of the UK useless

by Rudolf Faix 28. June 2015 10:34

Vivaticvivatic.com seems to be a good visited site, but outside of the United Kingdom useless. You have first to spend money by taking some offers before you are coming to the interesting parts of the site. Alternative you have some surveys, where you can participate only if you have a domestic address at the United Kingdom. Even the offers are useless outside the United Kingdom. As I have entered my address from the Philippines I could not really check all the offered functions. The sign-up is free, but if you are not living at the UK it is only a waste of time.

The surveys even don't get pre-filtered and if a link to a survey is functioning then you get the message that you are not available to participate because you don't have an UK address.

Here is a screenshot how it should work, but you have to complete the listed steps at the right site one after each other:

Vivatic LogIn Screen

 

After signing up you have to chose Vivatic-Choose-your-favourite-3-from-the-UKs-top-offers.pdf (161.64 kb) before you can do something really on the site. If you not chose some offers then you get the message: "You’ve not yet entered our Bonus Bonanza Enter now to grab a bonus £0.50 for every £2.50 you earn through surveys until 12:00 on Monday June 29th"

The most of the available surveys are ending up with the message: "This partner requires all members to have validated their Paypal address and come from the UK. Please validate your PayPal address to access this survey.".

Some are even bringing the following message:

Server Error
404 - File or directory not found.
The resource you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.

And one brought:

Warning! Could be unsafe!
 

Adguard has blocked access to this page

This web page at www.surveysavers.co.uk, has been reported as a phishing page and has been blocked based on your security preferences.

Adguard has found that this page may be a forgery or imitation of another website, designed to trick users into sharing personal or financial information. Entering any personal information on this page may result in identity theft or other abuse.

With other words the site has everything what it makes it useless. If you think that you can earn by promoting the site, then you'll get the next surprise about the conditions for referring a friend:

Refer A Friend
Recommend Vivatic to your friends and earn £2 for every friend who signs up and earns £10.

Note that the £10 can't include earnings from this referal scheme

As it is not possible to earn on the site something if you are living outside of the UK, is it in the most countries nothing else than an illegal pyramid system. Maybe it is possible to earn something if you are living in the United Kingdom,but I think you are spending more for taking the offers from the site than you can earn!

If we take a look at the Alexa Site statistics from vivatic.com, then we see that the most traffic is coming to the site from India:

Alexa ranking of vivatic.com

The huge traffic from India makes the ranking. As mostly the people from India are not reading the conditions would they be very surprised if they see that they are making a lot promotion for the site and earn nothing for their affiliate links.

Additional are the people very fast by deleting inactive accounts. I had signed up at June 22, 2015, have taken a look into the system 2 or 3 times and as I tried to log in today (June 28) after receiving a promotion (spam) email my account has been already deleted. Funny is that they did not delete my email address from their promotion system. For me is the site SCAM and scammer are normally too lazy for using their brain and for a serious business!

Fraud & Scam

John Chow dot Com - how good is he really?

by Rudolf Faix 24. June 2015 16:23

John ChowJohn Chow is calling himself at his Facebook profile John Chow dot Com. That is a reason for me to take a closer look at his work and his offers. First I have taken a look into his free eBook, what he offers.

The title of this eBook is "The ultimate online profit model" with the subtitle "The Ultimate Guide to Making Six-Figure Monthly Income on the Internet and Living The Dot Com Lifestyle". The Acrobat file has 50 pages. After title, content and self-congratulation the eBook starts at page 15 with an explanation of "The Affiliate Marketing Model" and the disadvantages of this model. At page 22 starts "The Affiliate Marketing Model That I Use". There he explains the model that you should be a real reseller of the products, create your own brand and collect the email addresses for your marketing activities.This system is absolutely correct because the money is not made with the teaser or promotion articles. The money is made with the repeating satisfied customers.

At page 24 he starts already with the tools you should use for your marketing activities. Don't worry he is a good businessman and has not forgotten to add his affiliate links to the tools. The tools, which he recommends are AWeber and LeadPages. For hosting of the high expected traffic he recommends the service from HostGator. As each online shop needs to describe their products and make promotion for it he is recommending his own services IM John Chow, Blogging with John Chow, WP Blog Videos and Work From No Home.

A dot Com millionaire need to get a a lot of traffic to this sites. Such sites should rank nearly to Google (Alexa global ranking #1), Facebook (Alexa global ranking #2), LinkedIn (Alexa global ranking #14), etc.

IM John Chow:

Building a successful online empire from scratch

A typical site how is it today normal for affiliate marketing sites. You have a caption - in this case in the background graphics integrated - and a video, which is starting immediately. With other words nothing what search engines can use for generating their index for the site. The only machine readable text is the membership fee "Just $47.00 (Plus $47 a month if you remain a member of IM John Chow)" and the disclaimer from ClickBank at the bottom of the site. Such a site is normally a big secret in the World Wide Web. If you do not promote the site by yourself permanently you'll not get some visitors to this site. This get shown by taking a look at the global ranking from Alexa:

Alexa ranking of imjohnchow.com

A global Alexa ranking of 1,500,000 equals to around 10 unique visitors a month, around 1% will click on a promotion link and from this one, which are clicking on a promotion link will only 0.5% buy the product if the product has a good promotion. With other words this site cannot be the source of his income. If you like to close or leave the page a script will hindrance you and like to give you a special offer. After confirming two popups you are able to leave the page.

 

Blogging with John Chow:

This is a special site. Here shows us John Chow that he even does not know that there are server site scripts available. If you are using an ad blocker in your browser, then you get the following view:

an impressing screenshot of bloggingwithjohnchow.com

As we see the dot Com millionaire has no real content on the site. Such a site is useless and will not bring any visitor from search engines. Even this site is a big secret in the World Wide Web. The global Alexa ranking shows it too:

Alexa ranking of bloggingwithjohnchow,com

The above Alexa ranking shows us that this is not really the site from where the millions of dollars are coming. For this we need to take the next one.

 

WP Blog Videos:

At this site we see again that John Chow or his web designer has no idea about the Internet and the functionality of search engines because the caption of the site is a graphic, which cannot get read from the search engines. At least this site contains more text, which can get indexed from the search engines. Anyway the content is nothing else than the usual self praising and he like to sell on this site a training for blogging with WordPress in seven modules for $97.

WPBlogVideos

One of this modules contains SEO (Search Engine Optimizing). I think about which content the SEO training can have if John Chow proves already at his own sites that does not have any idea about search engines. OK, this site has more machine readable content then the other ones, but the Alexa global ranking show us that even this site is not the source of his income - the site has the nearly the same ranking like the site imjohnchow.com:

Alexa ranking of wpböpgvodeos.com

 

Work From No Home:

By opening this site we get a nice surprise from the WOT (Web Of Trust) browser plugin:

WOT warning showed at WorkFromNoHome.com

 

If we continue going to the site we get the next surprise (I have used another browser):

Sold Out

This site is not his income too. Why does he name it in this case in his eBook? Only for filling the space?

After seven pages of unbelievable praising his sites, which have no success, he starts promoting the business from Matt Lloyd of Perth, Australia: My Online Business Empire" (mobe.com) and "My Top Tier Business" (mttb.com). This promotion starts at page 31 and ends at page 46. This promotion is highly exaggerated that it only can be a SCAM. I'll analyze the sites during the next days.

Summary: John Chow started with blogging very early as the blogs have been coming up. He made a good impression with his blog and he has chosen the right topic at the right time. His first book has been "Make Money Online: Roadmap of a Dot Com Mogul". He generated a few more books about getting rich from his blogs, The books are getting offered at Amazon. I think that he made a good income with his first book, but like every time a followup is never so good as the premiere. A copy of this idea with the same topic is already not possible, because there are already too many competitors at the market available. The trial attempts from above are showing us that he is searching a new income method. He tries it by creating a brand with his name. At the above ranking values we can see how successful he is by doing this. He seems to be a good writer but the ranking values are telling us another story about his attempt to be a business man.

As we can see at his sites he does not have any idea about Internet business and SEO. We can find a lot of his fails at his Facebook page (.pdf (79.64 mb)) too. It is no shame to fail - you have to learn by your own mistakes. It is only cheaper to learn by the mistakes of others. In the case of John Chow I ask myself if his "Ultimate Online Profit Model" is based on experience or is the source only his fantasy? Where ends the promotion and where starts the reality?

The only one of his sites, which has a good ranking is johnchow.com. My opinion is that this site gets visited from the readers and fans of his books. These people are hoping to get rich too. Especially he has the best ranking in India - a low wage country where most of the people are very poor. He gives to the visitors of his page the dream of getting fast and easily rich. The only one which is getting rich with such a system is site owner and the people on the top of the legal pyramid.
